It seems from the results of this survey, which is of course a very small sample of the population, that there is opportunity in Auchterarder for a supermarket and somewhere to go in the evening.  With the population increasing steadily it would be a shame for the town to lose out because people are going elsewhere for both their shopping and leisure time.
